Talking Heads Are About To Get Truth-Tested As Politifact Launches 'Punditfact'
PolitiFact won a Pulitzer Prize for fact-checking statements made by politicians, lobbyists and special interest groups. Their new venture called PunditFact will cast a wider net to rate the veracity of talking heads, bloggers and columnists…a pretty big job in the blustery airspace of opinion journalism.
